Accessories/Accents in interiors is now considered one of the most important selling points of a design. They are objects that compliment a design, add to the aesthetic value of a room. It can be in the form of cushions, mirrors, throws, vases, frames, flowers, candle holders, rugs…they don’t always need to be expensive items, but something that livens up and brings the whole space together.

Accessories don’t need to match the color palette or theme of the space. That’s the best part of it. Use them as an element of surprise!

Here are some examples of accessories you can use. Have a look and get inspired!


Home decor accents such as lamps, mirrors add to the small details which bring a space together. The final touches!


Fresh flowers always freshen up a room! Match it with some scented candles for the perfect touch.


Play around with some bright colored cushions, hang up a bold wall frame/art piece, or a coffee table contrasting the color palette in the room.


Perfect as a table centerpiece, bookshelf accent, or counter top display, a large bowl with decorative filler can be just the thing your home decor needs.

Stunning Living Room

I love this living room for some of its coolest details. The brick wall turns into the feature wall in this interior, lending itself for a more industrial feel. The great steel pieces and crates stacked up to create a faux TV console also create a unique industrial vibe. Although the absence of curtains, the big brown sofas with the square ottoman are not the ‘cozy’ elements, the living room creates a feeling of warmth.

Would surely love to relax in here!

This breathtaking marvel of modern design was custom-made for an Indian diamond merchant (natch) out of 40 individual sections of Burma teak. Each section is carved so that the door integrates 160 pulleys, 80 ball bearings, a wire-rope and a counter weight hidden within the single pivot. Stacked one above the other in the closed position, each plank can then rotate by a simple push causing the door to reconfigure into a sinusoidal curve. The door was one of four Architectural Review Emerging Architecture Award winners, a prize which honors “the best pieces of design by young architects from across the world.”

Well deserved to say the least.
